If you ever enjoyed playing with a kids chemistry set as a child, then making your own game charcuterie is most definitely for you. Its pure alchemy and my most enjoyable way to play with food.

Nocino is a digestif from my home region of Emilia Romagna. It falls into the rather loose category of ‘Amari.’ These are strong liquors that are normally herb, root or in this case nut-based and are Italy’s version of pro-biotics.
